are less competitive. republican sources say that they do see at this point losing scott brown's seat in massachusetts and the open seat in maine, which is currently held by olympia snow. she's retiring. democrats think they're likely to lose member nebraska's seat to a republican there. >> it seems that it was a given that republicans could take the senate especially since the democrats have a 23-seat in this terrible economy honestly. not so certain anymore. >> no, it's not. not even close. in fact, let's split up that first map by party is our viewers can see the republican challenge in getting the majority in the senate more clearly. first, the democratic seats. you see them there in blue. there are about eight of them nauls play, and republicans do lose that, then they're going to have to really run the board there almost with seven to get an outright 51 seat majority, which would be tough enough, but if you look at the next map, the republican seats up for grabs on tuesday, republicans have a problem there because they're defending other gop seats. there you see nevada, arizona,
all be beach. this should all be sandy coastline right here. but now, it's a foamy brown mess of angry atlantic ocean, thanks to hurricane sandy, which is about 240 miles to our east-southeast and heading in this general direction. we anticipate it to make landfall near atlantic city, near the delmarva. that means we're going to be on the bad side of this storm. we'll continue to get this pounding surf. the last time it was like this was a little over 12 months ago during hurricane irene. but that was at the height of irene. irene came on shore well to our north. this storm will bring this water up as much as another eight feet, which means the boardwalk will be compromised and the water will be going over the top of that. that's why this area's been evacuated. shelters are open. there's been 600 people that have taken advantage of that. just spoke with an official from the fire department here. a few minor calls into the asbury park fire department with some trees and some power lines down but no widespread damage as of yet. and no rescue operations under way. they certainly hope that
to senators on both democrat and republican sides of the aisle, senator rob portman and sherrod brown about this ad. take a listen. >> i say it is the most disingenuous ad i've ever seen. they know better. they know the auto rescue worked. they know that ohio reasons connected directly or indirectly to the auto rescue and they know that governor romney and my opponent's opposition to the auto rescue, they're trying to crowd the issue and it is pretty outrageous. >> it is their game to the extent it is reported in the media and that's all they have said, there is reports this could happen. the bigger issue for me is what i talked about today who has the best policies to be sure we can continue to manufacture here in america. >> so we should also say that the gm actually weighed in very unusually on this romney ad with a spokesman calling it the worst kind of cynical campaign politics. there is some pushback from the industry about this very controversial ad. >> and, john, big picture here, the latest poll showing us the president has a little bit, a slight edge in ohio right now. but how muc
starting shortly after midnight to try to evacuate some people from their apartments, from their brown stones here, people who just thought they couldn't really stay in their homes too much longer. not life threatening situations necessarily, but at least some discomfort there and people just not wanting to be in the homes with the water like this. now, we have to say now that the water is receding. it is receding pretty drastically over the last hour. there is a stretch of dry street there behind me. that was not there an hour ago. a lot of cars completely -- not completely but submerged up to the tire range there. now some of the water receding. a lot of that is due to the efforts of gentlemen like this. this is a volunteer from the neighborhood here. he and a couple of other guys have come out here on the corners here, clearing out storm drains. and i think that's responsible for a lot of the water reseating. city workers doing what they can to siphon this out. this is a surge from the hudson river that came up from the storm drain, when the storm came, the water came into the drain
? we also spoke to ohio senators, rob portman and sherrod brown about the ad. and here's what they said, carol. >> i say it's the most disingenuous ad i've seen. they know better. they know the auto rescue worked. they understand that 800,000 ohioans are connected directly or indirectly to the auto rescue. they know that governor romney and my opponent's proposition to the auto rescue -- they're trying to cloud the issue. and it's pretty outrageous. >> it's fair game to the extent it's reported in the media, and that's all he said, there have been reports this could happen. the bigger issue for me, who has the best policies to be sure we can continue to manufacture here in america. >> reporter: so both campaigns -- surrogates fighting over this ad. but the squabbling itself is a distraction. and, again, voters here saying they're not sure why the romney campaign decided to double down on this. auto industry so important to voters here in ohio and michigan. and this ad seems to have caused a distraction more than an asset. >> well, and the auto manufacturers, they're not very happy with
. >> oh, my gosh. listen, let's get down to business, brown noser, nevada is feeling a bit more optimistic, but the unemployment rate is still so high there. are there really signs of broader growth? >> reporter: there are. it is stunning that the president has held on to a lead, a slim lead in this state as he has because the unemployment is so bad. 12.3% in clark county, 11.8% in nevada. the worst in the nation. not only here at the stratosphere but there are buildings across town that have been stopped, the construction stopped for more than a year now. they're starting to start up again. the one big statistic i heard, which is a tiny statistic, the housing prices here. since 2007, they have gone down. in the last month, they went up by 1%. and that, for people in the housing market here, is huge. don? >> miguel, in all seriousness, great report. it makes a viewer watch. really good. thank you. i appreciate you joining us. miguel marquez. >>> cnn gets an underground look at the nation's busiest transportation system. have you ever been underground the new york city subway system. it is
